If anybody uses Firefox, you might want to read this:

...and remove it.

I got a really, really nasty virus while using Firefox a while back, and I suppose this is why?

Run Linux. :lol:

On a more serious note, it is reprehensible for Microsoft to have done this. Set Firefox to ask you before installing any add-ons or updates. Get antivirus protection if you don't already have it, a firewall, and install both SpyBot S&D and Ad Aware. Among free antivirus software, Comodo makes an excellent antivirus and firewall suite, and AVG is also good.
